Product Notes

Imagine yourself a cake baked on Tom Petty´s groove, the melodies from The Beatles and the harmonies from The Byrds and you're quite near the power of The Mop Tops music. The Mop Tops started out already back in 1985. Their first CD "Inside" came out in 1995 and was a great success. Now, 13 years after that CD, it´s finally time for the long-awaited follow up. The CD "Ground Floor Man" has been recorded in their hometown of Falköping, Sweden, and it has been mixed by Eric Ambel in New York. Eric is known for playing guitar with Steve Earle, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts as well as with the bands The Del-Lords and The Yayhoos. He´s also been producing lots of great music such as The Bottle Rockets and more. All the songs on the CD are written by singer/guitar player Tomas Nilsson and show his love for great pop music and bands such as The Beatles, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and The Byrds. Tomas manages to take these great influences and make it into something that sounds nothing but like The Mop Tops. The band has appeared on several different compilations, and for the Gene Clark tribute CD "Full Circle", the band managed to find the unreleased Gene Clark song "Christine", and they recorded a great version of it. The band has played at The International Pop Overthrow festival on several occasions both in Liverpool, UK and in New York. The last time was in May 2008 when they played four shows at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool. The band has also played at The Lakeside Lounge and The Parkside Lounge in New York.
